Be a Part of Recovery in Haiti

In 2010, Haiti experienced a devastating earthquake that displaced 1.5 million people from their homes and destroyed communities and businesses. Currently there is 40% unemployment and 70% of Haitians live in energy poverty.

By working with dedicated Field Partners in Haiti, Kiva and Kiva lenders are giving Haitians a chance to improve their businesses, access clean energy, and build a sustainable economy.

EarthSpark International and Kiva are scaling up the first pre-paid, solar-hybrid smart micro-grid in Haiti to serve both residential and commercial customers with reliable, affordable clean energy.

Fonkoze Foundation's crowd-funding loan platform, Zafèn, is now placing loans on Kiva, allowing more Haitian entrepreneurs and small businesses the opportunity to grow.

Kiva kicked off our renewed efforts in Haiti with an enterprise loan to Kreyòl Essence, a social business creating 300 new, quality jobs for farmers and women to grow caster plants and make oil from its seeds.

How Does Kiva Work?

  1. Choose a borrower
    you want to lend $25 or more to. Overall, borrowers on Kiva have a 98% repayment rate.
  2. Follow your loan.
    You'll get updates about the progress of your loan, including repayments.
  3. Do it all again!
    Any repayments are yours to keep, but we hope you'll support another person.
